[texts]Neutrino Oscillation Appearance Experiment using Nuclear Emulsion and Magnetized Iron - D. A. Harris
This report describes an apparatus that could be used to measure both the identity and charge of an outgoing lepton in a charged current neutrino interaction. This capability in a massive detector would allow the most comprehensive set of neutrino oscillation physics measurements. By measuring the six observable transitions between initial and final state neutrinos, one would be able to measure all elements of the neutrino mixing matrix, as well as search for CP violation, and matter effects...

[texts]Neutrino Scattering Uncertainties and their Role in Long Baseline Oscillation Experiments - The MINERvA Collaboration
The field of oscillation physics is about to make an enormous leap forward in statistical precision: first through the MINOS experiment in the coming year, and later through the NOvA and T2K experiments. Because of the relatively poor understanding of neutrino interactions in the energy ranges of these experiments, there are systematics that can arise in interpreting far detector data that can be as large as or even larger than the expected statistical uncertainties...

[texts]Precision Calibration of the NuTeV Calorimeter - The NuTeV Collaboration
NuTeV is a neutrino-nucleon deep-inelastic scattering experiment at Fermilab. The detector consists of an iron-scintillator sampling calorimeter interspersed with drift chambers, followed by a muon toroidal spectrometer. We present determinations of response and resolution functions of the NuTeV calorimeter for electrons, hadrons, and muons over an energy range of 4.8 to 190 GeV. The absolute hadronic energy scale is determined to an accuracy of 0.43%...

[texts]The Potential for Neutrino Physics at Muon Colliders and Dedicated High Current Muon Storage Rings - I. Bigi
Conceptual design studies are underway for muon colliders and other high-current muon storage rings that have the potential to become the first true ``neutrino factories''. Muon decays in long straight sections of the storage rings would produce precisely characterized beams of electron and muon type neutrinos of unprecedented intensity. This article reviews the prospects for these facilities to greatly extend our capabilities for neutrino experiments, largely emphasizing the physics of neutrino...

[texts]Beam-Based Alignment of the NuMI Target Station Components at FNAL - R. Zwaska
The Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI) facility is a conventional horn-focused neutrino beam which produces muon neutrinos from a beam of mesons directed into a long evacuated decay volume. The relative alignment of the primary proton beam, target, and focusing horns affects the neutrino energy spectrum delivered to experiments. This paper describes a check of the alignment of these components using the proton beam.

[texts]Secondary Beam Monitors for the NuMI Facility at FNAL - S. Kopp
The Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI) facility is a conventional neutrino beam which produces muon neutrinos by focusing a beam of mesons into a long evacuated decay volume. We have built four arrays of ionization chambers to monitor the position and intensity of the hadron and muon beams associated with neutrino production at locations downstream of the decay volume. This article describes the chambers' construction, calibration, and commissioning in the beam.

We report on the extraction of the structure functions F_2 and Delta xF_3 = xF_3nu-xF_3nubar from CCFR neutrino-Fe and antineutrino-Fe differential cross sections. The extraction is performed in a physics model independent (PMI) way. This first measurement for Delta xF_3, which is useful in testing models of heavy charm production, is higher than current theoretical predictions. The F_2 (PMI) values measured in neutrino and muon scattering are in good agreement with the predictions of Next to Le...

[texts]Strange Content of the Nucleon (NuTeV) - NuTeV Collaboration
The NuTeV experiment uses neutrino deep-inelastic scattering from separate neutrino and anti-neutrino beams to study the structure of the nucleon. Charged-current production of charm is sensitive to the strange content of the nucleon while neutral-current charm production probes the charm content. Preliminary analyses of both topics are presented along with discussion of possible momentum asymmetry in the strange sea.

[texts]A Search for Muon-neutrino to Electron-neutrino and Muon-antineutrino to Electron-antineutrino Oscillations at NuTeV - S. Avvakumov
Limits on $\nu_\mu \to \nu_e$ and $\bar\nu_\mu \to \bar\nu_e$ oscillations are extracted using the NuTeV detector with sign-selected $\nu_\mu$ and $\nub_\mu$ beams. In $\nub_\mu$ mode, for the case of $\sin^2 2\alpha = 1$, $\Delta m^2 > 2.6$ ${\rm eV^2}$ is excluded, and for $\Delta m^2 \gg 1000$ ${\rm eV^2}$, $\sin^2 2\alpha > 1.1 \times 10^{-3}$. The NuTeV data exclude the high $\Delta m^2$ end of $\bar\nu_\mu \to \bar\nu_e$ oscillations parameters favored by the LSND experiment without the ne...

[texts]Evidence for Diffractive Charm Production in nu_mu Fe and nubar_mu Fe Scattering at the Tevatron - NuTeV Collaboration
We present evidence for the diffractive processes nu_mu Fe -> mu^- D_s^+ (D_s^*+) Fe and nubar_mu Fe -> mu^+ D_s^- (D_s^*-) Fe using the Fermilab SSQT neutrino beam and the Lab E neutrino detector. We observe the neutrino trident reactions nu_mu Fe -> nu_mu mu^- mu^+ Fe and nubar_mu Fe -> nubar_mu mu^+ mu^- Fe at rates consistent with Standard Model expectations. We see no evidence for neutral-current production of J/psi via either diffractive or deep inelastic scattering mechanisms.

[texts]Search for a 33.9 MeV/c^2 Neutral Particle in Pion Decay - J. A. Formaggio
The E815 (NuTeV) neutrino experiment has performed a search for a 33.9 MeV/c^2 weakly-interacting neutral particle produced in pion decay. Such a particle may be responsible for an anomaly in the timing distribution of neutrino interactions in the KARMEN experiment. E815 has searched for this particle's decays in an instrumented decay region; no evidence for this particle was found. The search is sensitive to pion branching ratios as low as 10^-13.
[texts]Measurement of sin2thetaW from Neutrino-Nucleon Scattering at NuTeV - K. S. McFarland
We report the measurement of sin2thetaW in neutrino-nucleon deep inelastic scattering from the NuTeV experiment. Using separate neutrino and anti-neutrino beams, NuTeV is able to determine sin2thetaW with low systematic errors by measuring the Paschos-Wolfenstein variable R-minus, a ratio of differences of neutrino and anti-neutrino neutral-current and charged-current cross-sections. NuTeV measures sin2thetaW(on-shell)= 0.2253+/-0.0019(stat)+/-0.0010(syst), which implies a W mass of 80.26+/-0.11...

[texts]Measurement of sin^2 theta_W in nu N Scattering from NuTeV - NuTeV Collaboration
We report the measurement of sin^2 theta_W in nu N deep inelastic scattering from the NuTeV experiment. By using separate neutrino and anti-neutrino beams, NuTeV is able to determine sin^2 theta_W with smaller systematic and similar or smaller statistical errors when compared to previous neutrino experiments. NuTeV measures sin^2 theta_W (on-shell) = 0.2253 +/- 0.0019(stat.) +/- 0.0010(sys.), which implies M_W = 80.26 +/- 0.11 GeV/c^2.

A search for long-lived neutral particles (N^0's) with masses above 2.2 GeV/c^2 that decay into at least one muon has been performed using an instrumented decay channel at the NuTeV experiment at Fermilab. Data were examined for particles decaying into the final states mu mu, mu e, and mu pi. Three mu mu events were observed over an expected Standard Model background of 0.069 +/- 0.010 events; no events were observed in the other modes.

[texts]Nuclear Structure Functions in the Large x Large Q^2 Kinematic Region in Neutrino Deep Inelastic Scattering - CCFR collaboration
Data from the CCFR E770 Neutrino Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS) experiment at Fermilab contain events with large Bjorken x (x>0.7) and high momentum transfer (Q^2>50 (GeV/c)^2). A comparison of the data with a model based on no nuclear effects at large x, shows a significant excess of events in the data. Addition of Fermi gas motion of the nucleons in the nucleus to the model does not explain the excess...

[texts]A Measurement of the Weak Mixing Angle in Neutrino-Nucleon Scattering at NuTeV - G. P. Zeller
The NuTeV experiment at Fermilab presents a determination of the electroweak mixing angle. High purity, large statistics samples of muon-neutrino and muon-antineutrino events allow the use of the Paschos-Wolfenstein relation. This considerably reduces systematic errors associated with charm production and other sources. With Standard Model assumptions, this measurement of sin2thw indirectly determines the W boson mass to a precision comparable to direct measurements from high energy e+e- and p-p...

[texts]Low Q^2 low x structure function analysis of CCFR data for F2 - CCFR Collaboration
Analyses of structure functions (SFs) from neutrino and muon deep inelastic scattering data have shown discrepancies in F2 for x < 0.1. A new SF analysis of the CCFR collaboration data examining regions in x down to x=.0015 and 0.4 < Q^2 < 1.0 is presented. Comparison to corrected charged lepton scattering results for F2 from the NMC and E665 experiments are made. Differences between muon and neutrino scattering allow that the behavior of F2 from muon scattering could be different from F2 from n...
